They are motivated by the need for RESULTS. The Direct Communicator can get a bad rap […]



Eavesdropping For Effective Communication.

July 21, 2015 | Sue Lester

Self-talk

Language is a very powerful filter, because we create our reality through our perceptions of events.  In other words, we talk to ourselves about what is happening, and can empower or disempower ourselves with our self-talk.  In addition, we have a language filter which may block out a third or two-thirds of the conversation we […]



Post Event Wrap Up

Sharing knowledge with like-minded individuals positions you as a valuable contact.

I have just returned from an international annual conference in Las Vegas at the MGM Grand.  Wow… what a huge venue it is.  Actually, the fight between Floyd Mayweather Jr and Manny Pacquiao has just been held there.  I can absolutely guarantee I did not pay $3,000 per ticket to attend my conference!

Be…Do…Have

June 15, 2015 | Pix Jonasson

Sharing knowledge with like-minded individuals positions you as a valuable contact.

I was at a recent out of town marketing event.  It’s very powerful when you are an “outsider” at events, meaning, I was not intimately involved in the event management side of things. My ‘Be…Do…Have’ mantra relates to Be Prepared, Do Your Due Diligence and Have A Great Team. Be Prepared Make sure that you […]
